    Not getting 852 data on Z39.50 search

    Some adjustments have been made to our z39.50 configuration in the past few months. We are no longer getting 852 data in records retrieved via z39.50. I have looked at abc01/tab/tab_expand and added the line Z39_SERVER expand_doc_bib_loc_disp, stopped/started the z39.50 server, but I still only get call numbers for about 20% of the records I retrieve (same as before I changed tab_expand). Should I be using a different expand routine?

    expand_doc_bib_loc_disp generates a LOC field, and I think you are looking for actual MARC tags for inclusion in the BIb record. expand_doc_bib_hol should do what you want. This will embed basically all of the MARC tags from the Holdings record - including the 008. If you only want to include the 852 tag, then you can add the string 852## to column 3 of the line in tab_expand:

    Z39_SERVER expand_doc_bib_hol 852##
